Queen Silvia wore the Braganca tiara during a state visit to Denmark in 2007. I believe that in a documentary she said that she wore it as she knew how much it would be appreciated by Q. Margrethe that she wore the piece.

See picture (click on the picture itself to expand and be baffled... )

It might have carat power, but it does not have size on its side.

This Dutch state visit to Denmark is one of the most anticapted events on the royal calendar for sure


Expecting Mary to be in her the ruby tiara.
Maxima will bring out a 'big gun' and hopefully something new to her and unseen
She could use the rubies on the return banquet as a nod to their hosts

I like the idea of Queen Margrete wearing the Orange-Nasau diadem just because of its name. I don't know what it looks like, any pictures anywhere?

Let us take Crown Princess Mary's diadem from her ruby parure. Stunning in design but closer inspection learns that the diamonds are extremely small -almost zirconias- and tightly set in the metal of the "leaves".

This picture shows how much "metal filling" the diadem has: http://41.media.tumblr.com/c5b796ec9...hm9o1_1280.png

Then look at this sparkling picture to see that besides the spikes there is no metal, just diamonds (click on the pic to blow up to mega-XXL).

There were two identical diadems made for two Dutch-German sisters-in-law:

1 - for Princess Louise of the Netherlands born Princess of Prussia
2 - for Princess Marianne of Prussia born Princess of the Netherlands

1 - ended up in the Danish royal family, by inheritance, still existant
2 - ended up in the princely family Reuss, by inheritance, whereabouts unknown

I think it is clear to all that the diamonds are big. However, that doesn't change the fact that the tiara isn't.

I don't think that is a good picture of the Danish ruby parure if you want to see it properly. That is a picture when it was at the court jewelry for reconstruction a couple of years ago. And all that "gold" in the picture is used to clean the tiara and is therefor not part of the tiara. So the picture doesn't show how the design and setting look like.

The rose cut bandeau is beautiful, but I'm hoping Maxima leaves that one at home and brings out something else.

Queen Máxima can better use a beauty pageant crown with fake stones and just sell her real stuff. Fat chance that will be big enough. Quality, provenance or anciennity of diamonds, gems and pearls seem not important anymore.

Who said that provenance, quality etc. of stones are not important? And who wants her to wear a fake beauty pageant crown? . It isn't as if the other tiaras suggested were acquired last week from Toys "R" Us.

I guess there will be no surprises at the Gala Dinner in Oslo tonight. Queen Sonja with the emeralds and CP Mette-Marit with the Diamond Daisy.

But it at least give us more glitter!

Queen Sonja might wear the diamond tiara of Queen Josephine or the pearl tiara of Queen Maude. The pearl tiara seems amoung her favourites, and the diamond tiara is not used often enough for my taste.

So this is my wish:
Queen Sonja - Queen Josephine's diamond tiara
CP Mette-Marit - the amethyst tiara
Princess Astrid - the Vasa tiara

And this is my more realistic guess:
Queen Sonja - the pearl tiara in it's large setting
CP Mette-Marit - the diamond daisy bandeau
Princess Astrid - one of the aigrettes, probably the wings

I agree with you. It is absolutely stunning and beautiful tiara. I wish she wore it more frequently to important state dinners.

I think Queen Sonja will use the smaller version of the Queen Maud pearl tiara. This is a relatively low profile visit from a republic, so I suspect the overall "bling quotient" will be low.

May 27: State Openingi of Parliament. There is not much to guess because it's always the State Diadem for the Queen and the honeycomb for Camilla

There's also a Dutch State Visit to Canada, but I don't think that Canada has tiara events (except for their own Queen).

June: National Day Gala in Luxembourg


edit:
I think there will be 2 tiara Galas for the Birthday:
April 15: Gala Dinner at Christiansborg Slot for Queen Margrethe’s 75th Birthday
April 16: Dinner at Fredensborg Slot
The first dinner will probably be white tie and the second dinner in black tie. But the Danish Queen likes to have tiaras at her black tie events, so I hope for many tiaras.

It would be great if Queen Silvia wore the Cameo tiara at the 2015 Nobel Prizes. It would also be exactly 10 years since she wore it at the last Nobel event. If she does not wear it then, I would love is she wore for the King's 70th birthday in 2016. I would guess she will wear the Braganza tiara, but she did wear the Connaught tiara at his 50th birthday, maybe she plans on wearing different tiaras for the King's major birthdays. I also don't think there was a tiara event for his 40th birthday.
